The Ohio Supreme Court has turned down a request to review Ryan Widmer’s conviction in the 2008 bathtub drowning of his wife, Sarah, 24.
Widmer, 32, a Colerain Township native who last lived in Mason, is serving 15 years to life in prison.
While prosecutors assert that ample evidence points to a forced drowning, Widmer protests his innocence.
He and his supporters say his young wife showed possible signs of a genetic heart-rhythm disorder that could have caused her to drown. But she was never tested for that condition.
